Award-winning science fiction novelist and AMC media critic John Scalzi has posted his list of the Ten Worst SciFi Blockbusters of the '00s.

Both Mission to Mars (2000), starring Gary Sinise, Connie Nielsen, Tim Robbins and Don Cheadle, and Red Planet (2000), starring Val Kilmer, Carrie-Anne Moss, Tom Sizemore and Benjamin Bratt, made Scalzi's list.

That list is fantastic. LOL I couldn't improve on it if I tried.

These two films always get lumped together, which is unfortunate. Red Planet is a steaming pile of crud.

Mission to Mars, on the other hand, is a great film. I watch it every few months. It shows a lot of the spirit and optimism that used to surround NASA missions.
